  • Cougar volleyball pounces on...

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen volleyball didn’t exactly have its work cut out for it against Standley Lake last week, but that didn’t mean the Gators couldn’t give the Cougars a good match.

    Following a rocky start for Standley Lake on Oct. 16, the Gators regrouped in games two and three to make the Cougars sweat. In the end, however, it wasn’t enough as No. 7 Evergreen (15-3) held on to win 3-0.

    CONIFER — The scoreboard might not have had much to show for the Lobos’ efforts at the season-ending boys’ soccer game at Conifer High School, but the team fought valiantly to defend its home turf against the SkyView Wolverines. 

    The final score was 6-0 favoring the Wolverines, but the Lobos gave them a run for their money.

  • On the Move: Be ready for winter...

    As I write this it’s chilly and we had our first snow. The snow is almost gone, but thoughts of winter activity is going strong. I personally love to ski, trail run, hike and snowshoe high up in the mountains in winter. I’ve learned from years of being a trainer that my training program makes a big difference in making outdoor activities more enjoyable.

  • Conifer’s Prieto boosted strong...

    Freshman Cheyenne Prieto came into Conifer this year to help an already powerful Lobo softball team. Now, she’s adding a more lethal edge on the mound in addition to junior Josey Nichols.

    At the end of the regular season, Prieto boasted a 2.54 ERA across seven starts and 19 mound appearances, which was good enough to garner a 15-2 record. Early on, she was a huge asset for the Lobos, who were without their starting pitcher in Nichols for the first few games of the season.

  • Conifer cross country finishes...

    The Conifer cross country team finished the regular season by meeting its league-winning goal this year.

    At the Windjammer Invitational at Englewood on Oct. 6, both the girls and boys teams won the Colorado 7 team league titles. During their most recent meet, they performed exceptionally well, too.

    At Wiggins on Saturday, the boys team won and the girls took third behind Denver North and Battle Mountain. That meet is the Lobos’ biggest of the year, where they typically run their fastest as the regular season comes to a close.

  • Lobo volleyball falls to rivals...

    ENGLEWOOD — Conifer volleyball had to field a lot of challenges in its 3-1 loss to Englewood on Oct. 9.

    Already down two starting setters due to injury, the Lobos were forced to start two JV setters in their places. Then one of the JV setters hit her head on the court in the second game.

    “We had so much thrown at us,” senior outside hitter Jessica King said. “... We had to be thrown into multiple different things that we’ve never done before, and it was really difficult. Somehow, we got some points on the board.”

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Going into the 4A state golf tournament at the Club at Flying Horse, Evergreen’s Nolan Miller was poised to lead his team.

    But, after spraining his ankle just before the big day while roller skating, Miller decided he couldn’t sufficiently swing his club during practice on the morning of Oct. 1. Senior Justin Sneed, who had made the trip to support his teammates, stepped up and stepped in to play in his spot.

  • Evergreen volleyball continues...

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen volleyball cannot be stopped.

    Going into Thursday’s big victory over Golden, the eighth-ranked Cougars (per CHSAANow.com) had been on a six-match win streak, most of which ended 3-0. Naturally, the Golden contest wasn’t any different as Evergreen took the Demons down easily after a sketchy first set, 3-0.

    “Tonight, it was just a big game because Golden’s really high in our rankings for our league, so it’s definitely an important game that we took the win,” senior outside hitter Gabby Clark said.

  • A family affair

    LITTLETON — It didn’t matter that it was 40 degrees and raining. All that mattered to the Evergreen football team was that it support a good cause and one of its own.

    Early Sunday morning, Evergreen football team members went to Hudson Gardens for the ninth-annual Justice Run — a 5K and 10K race that focuses funds and awareness on the human trafficking crisis in Africa.

  • Evergreen Cougars’ offense rains...

    EVERGREEN — From the beginning of the season, the Evergreen football coaches ensured the Cougars’ road to the postseason wouldn’t be easy.

    After a 43-0 beat down of George Washington at home on a rainy Friday night, it appears their preparation has come full circle.
